Event Description

The exhibit features images which capture the quiet beauty and intimate landscapes of New Jersey's Pinelands National Reserve by photographer Albert Horner, and artifacts from the NJ State Museum's collections which tell just some of the stories of the land, animals, people and industries that make the Reserve a state and national treasure. The 40th anniversary of the Pinelands Preservation Act, considered by former Governor Brendan Byrne to be the most important accomplishment of his administration, and the issue most central to his legacy as governor, will be commemorated in 2019. Horner, a self-taught photographer from Medford Lakes, brings curiosity, reverence and a practiced eye to his craft, recording the forests, cedar swamps, meandering waterways and native wildflowers that make the Pinelands unique. In addition to being home to rare plant and animal species, the Reserve also contains archeological sites and a vibrant cultural history of craftspeople, industry and agriculture.
